    J. Longs for Men is a family business with a foundation built on suiting.  To this day that foundation has not cracked even with the resurgence of business-casual in the past decade.  Change is good.  We showcase looks with fresh, contemporary color palettes, whether you’re a suit guy or you just like to roll with slacks and a sport shirt.

    Dressing casual doesn’t have to mean looking unkept.  “Big City” brands line our walls to bring you comfort and quality only displayed in the country’s top-tier Men’s Stores.

    Our Mission: To make the buying experience one of enjoyment. People deserve a comfortable atmosphere along with guidance from a friendly and knowledgeable staff. We suggest, not push. We educate, not proclaim. As long as we are required to wear clothing by law, we shall provide our clients with the best clothing.
